ENGLEWOOD - As the summer winds down and kids are getting ready to go back to school, an Englewood church hosted a block party to give out free school supplies to needy kids.

The Mount Cavalry Baptist Church has been hosting the giveaway for the past 10 years.

Parents say that they are grateful for the help, especially in such a bad economy.

Organizers say nearly 1,000 kids were able to get free school supplies.
